“The Gem of Indian Shores”
Reviewed April 11, 2007

Barefoot Beach is a great place to vacation. We really had a great time there. We rented a ground floor one bedroom directly from the owner and was very happy with our decision. It was decorated beautifully, everything was new, it was very clean, and very comfy. There were even all of our beach needs included, such as beach towels, chairs, cooler, and beach bag.
The condo was in the front of the resort looking down the beach access. We were on the sand in no time. The beach was beautiful, the weather could not have been better and the pool was large and perfect. We will return to this condo again. The owners were very easy to work with, Barefoot Beach is in a great location, the condo is like being at home, the price is right, plenty of parking and friendly people. A true gem in Indian Shores.

  • Liked — The condo was really beautiful and clean inside. The location was great also.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

Very nice modern condo with lots of room. We did cook lunch here every day, grilled once and had pizza one night. Loved the 2 person shower. Pool was very warm and clean. Beach area nice. Would stay again.

When we checked-in the woman in the office was very pleasant. The location of the resort was a great location if you're not able to rent directly on the beach as you just have to walk across the street to the beach. When we got in to our room (C108) it wasn't very clean. The floors were VERY dirty. The private patio was filthy; there were cigarette butts all over the ground and on the table, the table looked liked it had never been wiped down, there were shoes lying on the gound, there were things strewn all over and I actually thought someone must be occupying the room already because I had never been to a hotel or resort that looked so "lived in" after supposedly being cleaned. The bathroom was clean however there wasn't any toilet paper and we had to purchase our own, and the bathroom door would only colse if you slammed it hard 3 or 4 times (by the end of our 3 night stay the door came off the top hinge preventing it from closing at all, not good for privacy.) The linens for the sofabed consisted of only one raggedy blanket and two pillows WITHOUT pillowcases. Disgusting. (We went to a store to buy our own pillows and blankets.) When we pulled down the master bedroom comforter to get into bed there were CRUMBS INBETWEEN THE SHEETS! That tells me they didn't even change linens from the previous guests stay. That was totally disgusting!! They did, however, come with fresh towels everyday.

We stayed at this resort for spring break (March 16-23, 2007). The condo was nice and had plenty of room for 2 adults, a 17 year old and 10 year old child. It was nice to have room to spread out. It was March Madness time, so we appreciated having 3 televisions.
Although we didn't cook all of the kitchen tools and appliances were available for cooking. We used the full-size fridge for drinks and snacks. Our unit was on the second floor and faced a parking lot, but we were not bothered by any noise (traffic, cars or tenants). I would not want a unit that faced the street however as I would imagine you would hear a lot of traffic noise. The pool area was nice and clean. We did use the laundry facilities during our stay. The beach is a short walk across the street and very easy to access (much shorter than I imagined). When you book online you never really know what you are getting, but this accomodation exceeded my expectations. The Indian Shores area is nice, but to travel anywhere else is a traffic nightmare (e.g. Clearwater or Tampa).
The only blemish was arriving late Friday night and upon arrival discovering the unit had no toilet paper, so we had to make a late night run to Walgreens. The management did apologize for this oversight.
There are many restaurants in the area. There is also a miniature golf course within walking distance of the condos. The Lighthouse coffee shop and bakery is a good place to grab doughnuts or bagels in the morning. If you are expecting a resort as the name implies you will be disappointed. We were not expecting a resort. I would recommend this property.
